Opinion:I bought this second-hand reflex in 2014 as my first body with which I started photographing. I weighed the choice in search of a system and a body that would allow me to practice more genres waiting to see if I felt interest, or otherwise not to have overspending otherwise. I was looking for a body that could satisfy not only the needs of a beginner but that could also meet additional needs arising later, like the multiexposure of which I was very curious. I chose the Pentax system for tropicalization, robustness, image quality and excellent value for money, and the possibility to use even old quality optics and low cost, without any particular problems thanks to the usual Bayonet. I bought the body with the 18-55 and the 55-300 allowing me to have a mini kit handyman at the cost of 500 euros. Writing a review today is more a kind of homage to the machine than of concrete usefulness being the medium now exceeded by successive models and yet, always widely suited to my actual needs and generalist needs. Mine has not at the moment ever presented any problem of defect to the shutter. I used it, and very, in all environmental conditions, even difficult, without ever having any problem. My concerns were limited to a couple of minutes for easel falls and fortunately vanished from the observation of regular operation. I'll keep it as a second body, or hoping that my daughter might be interested sooner or later at photography, having desire to switch from 16 to 24 mpx, use a swivelling display, and connect Wi-Fi to my room, opting for another Pentax machine. But the K30 was like the first kiss and I can't forget it.
Pros:grip, handling, weather sealing, customizable buttons, price / quality ratio and double ring
Cons:no one for its price range
Opinion:I bought this Pentax at the end of 2012 and therefore are more than four years that the use. rnNon it can only speak well of them. When I bought for your budget that it was almost an obligatory choice in the sense that at the same price this machine outclassed all the others. Fact: weather sealing, double wheel and customizable buttons as well as the covering of the viewfinder 100% are characteristic of semi-critical pro.rnQualche is moved to the battery life: Normally I exceed 400 shots although every time I go out to take pictures do not think get to that limit. Moreover I have a battery riserva.rnSono about to buy the K-70 only because it has the orientabile.rn display
Opinion:essentially confirm the positive opinions of those who have preceded me. The use by touring with an old 20 mm autofocus which makes it very easy to handle. I add that the autonomy problem is easily solved by buying a couple of spare batteries (the internet you can easily find the original as well as compatible that work well and are cheap). There is a small insert (quite expensive) which allows the use of AA batteries (which are everywhere) providing a range of about 50 photos, which saved me a few times and got me back to the time of the films when before you take it a lot more thought.
Opinion:I write basically to meet that Fratomic: if a review is to be of that type, kindly do not write more because people see this site (very nice and reliable) to create an 'opinion. What you write is quite misleading and does not help anyone. In short, it is not no service. Without going into the details of your review (as everything is debatable) I remain very surprised when I read that the machine does not have USB and download photos you have to remove the card and put it in the PC. So there are two things: either you have reviewed a 'machine or other just, as I believe it is, you do not have it at k30. Greetings
Pros:16 megapixels, ISO management above average, solid body with comfortable grip and "close", intuitive, simple clarity of content, autofocus takes well even in low light slightly over competitors in the same price range (not quality), detail sharpness and photo as the full frame of 2-3 years ago, pleasing aesthetics and aggressive, DNG file, great for workability and to convert to other formats, autofocus motor room, good battery life in my opinion below average of Canikon.rnScatto up to 1 / 6000s Fast for a prosumer aps; AA reduced filter you see the enormous detail, noise pre factory set in "gray mode" that is up to 6400 ISO you see a film like grain and non grain colored pictures worse than it is but natural.
Cons:Autofocus speed good but room for improvement, usb car slow to download photos on pc, battery life good but not great, a little buffer reduced, even with SD as a fast 90 MB / s for writing, not more than 12 consecutive raw (burst mode ), has 25,600 iso, iso too many leads you to a purchase dishonorable for beginners as first SLR
Opinion:Speaking of pros and cons is easy, talk about how you are after one year with this car it is really the right thing to do, to express the experience with 20,000 photos in one year makes the machine right from idea.rnUna 'beginning gave me the idea of ??strength and grip (grip) truly outstanding, used in the rain with suitable objectives and tropicalization made his lavoro.rnAmo usually print the photos in large 70x100 minimum, up to 120x180, the rendering iso is spectacular in my opinion, in the prints of 70x100 you get a beautiful grain to ISO 4000 and the colors and details are not lost much. Above 4000 ISO, discourage the prints over 40x60, ok for 20x30.rnPosso say that for an APS sensor with a sony so good, I am setting a limit iso 1600, sometimes 3200. For professional photos no later than 1600 ISO, you can still take pictures for marriage, baptisms and other events indoors, maybe with a good flash and photographic techniques from utilizzare.rnE 'machine "perfect" for those who think that the machinena camera is a tool for taking photographs, and not for those who think that it takes the "super" machine to take pictures buone.rnSi ranks among the pro-sumer, and still is a matter of marketing, because if you can take a picture as you want, then visit te.rnMi mind on the one hand that Pentax Ricoh today, think of making out a FF, because it loses the mental placement of super specialist for APS antonomasia.rnFinendo can tell you: it is technically a super good, and always technically, I see no point in trying more expensive machines, if anything, would invest on optic optical giuste.rnLe all with bayonet K, we can exploit those from about 70 years onwards, and prices are ridiculous manual lenses panic, for people like me who like the manual and the blurring of qualità.rnVoglio give an information, which is to destroy the myth that Pentax has a few optics in its catalog: They are all optical APS and some viable for the future FF, and 44 are lenses for APS against 15- 20 of the competition, so I guess not too many pochis! Not to mention the brands outside compatibili.rnHo discovered something that many Canonikonisti bite their hands, this model, like all of Pentax, the setting has to remedy the back and front focus in case there was a need, and on my Sigma I suffer from a back focus after setting the machine, the problem disappeared ... Great Pentax!
